Hi, Doodle here.
Francie and Oakley rescued me from the shelter. Wow, that was their lucky day (and mine, too)! Last week I visited The Island School with three other rescues to show the kids what great dogs are available for adoption at the shelters. Francis keeps saying what a sweet girl I am.
Who’d think that two years later I’d be on stage at the Boca Grande Dog Show? It sure beats chasing wild hogs through the Louisiana bayous with my Catahoula relatives. At least, that’s what humans think. I’ve been working on my commands just for the show.
“Sit” is going to be important for the musical chairs event. Francie says she’ll be happy if we get through the first round. She’s underestimating my determination and tenacity. If I can’t win by the rules, I’ll go rogue.
Confusion is mightier than the sword.
Wit and imagination can steal the show. Just ask W.C. Fields. Go to page 24 for more exciting news about the upcoming dog show!
